Epworth is blessed to have Allan and Debbie Benson heading up the choir and organ respectively. Under their care and tutelage, the choir sings every Sunday at the traditional service, and they lead a Christmas cantata annually. They have also been instrumental in forming countless children who have passed through the Charleston County school system where they both work.
